Will the D2H meter with my AI-S MF lenses
I was wondering if the D2H will meter with my MF AI-S lenses?
If so does it meter in all metering modes? ie: Matrix, Spot etc.
The best tool you have is the one
between your ears

Being an owner of a D2H, I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't know the complete answer to your question and my manual is at home. Yes, the camera will meter with MF AI and AIS lenses with certain rare exceptions. The exceptions are covered in the manual.
It is necessary to manually enter the focal length and speed of the lens into the camera then it all works including the correct aperture setting on the LCD displays. Since I don't have any MF zooms, I can't address that part of the issue. The whole process is easy but does slow you down if you change lenses often.
As for the metering modes, I think they are all available but I could be wrong about the matrix mode.
I have shot with my MF 85 f1.4 and and got good exposure results.

the D2H works fine with AI and AIS Lenses, you onlay have to tell in the setup menu wich f-stop it has (not nesecary for metering, only for showing the correct value in display) and wich focallenght(105mm or 35mm ....) it has.
I use a 105 / 2,8 and hey, it's gerat!
